Spanish Moss by Krylon
Green is quickly becoming the new neutral as homeowners opt for comforting colors in lieu of the crisp, bright whites of decades past. For its 2023 color of the year, Krylon selected Spanish Moss, a deep forest green that nods to nature. The spray paint shade easily upgrades furniture and decor, plus plays well with practically everything.
"This midnight green has a strong connection with the richness of nature, dense forests, and mossy terrains. Rooted in the renewing power of green, it can balance with both warm and cool accents," said Ashley Banbury, senior color designer for Krylon, in a press release.
Banbury suggests pairing the rich, grounding green with complementary colors like gold, sandstone, and copper that relate to nature.
Raspberry Blush by Benjamin Moore
Bright and cheery, Benjamin Moore's pick for 2023 color of the year is a vibrant red-orange called Raspberry Blush. The saturated shade energizes a room for a lively look that's anything but timid.
“People are ready to bring color back into the home, taking a step outside their color comfort zones,” said Andrea Magno, color marketing and development director at Benjamin Moore, in a press release. “Raspberry Blush 2008-30 and the Color Trends 2023 palette empower the use of statement colors that deliver delight and personality while transforming rooms for incredible results."
For a maximalist approach, splash Raspberry Blush on walls, trim, and the ceiling to wrap a room in warmth. Or go for a smaller statement on a kitchen island. Soft shades of white and beige balance the bright, rosy hue.
Terra Rosa by Dunn-Edwards
With the latest 2023 color of the year announcement, soft, earthy shades of pink and clay take the lead as the most popular paint colors. Terra Rosa by Dunn-Edwards blends brown and burgundy for a rosy pink that works as both a grounding neutral and a delicate accent.
“We’re putting health and wellbeing first, making time for escapism and embracing nostalgia ... This translates to design through lush, sophisticated touches with equal parts prettiness and drama," said Sara McLean, color expert and stylist for Dunn-Edwards.
Sweet and cozy without being saccharine, the warm hue adds comfort to a bedroom or living space. Or splash Terra Rose on your home's exterior for standout style.
Redend Point by Sherwin-Williams
A blend of blush and beige, Redend Point by Sherwin-Williams features subtle pink undertones to warm up walls. The grounding shade feels especially on trend as homeowners turn toward earth tones to bring comfort and joy to their interior spaces.
"People have been drawn to nature-inspired and earthy tones the past couple years, and this is something that will continue into 2023 and beyond," says Sue Wadden, director of color marketing at Sherwin-Williams. "Greens, blues, and browns can make any space feel safe, calming, and grounded yet still energized."
Showcase Redend Point in an entryway that greets guests with an inviting welcome, or on furniture, such as a bathroom vanity, to create an eye-catching focal point.
Blank Canvas by Behr
Not every 2023 color of the year aims to make a statement. Blank Canvas, Behr's pick, is a creamy shade of white that goes with practically everything. The warm neutral stands out from the icy modern hues popular in the past.
"Blank Canvas effortlessly offers a clean and inviting blank slate that allows individuality and creativity to flow freely. This white easily harmonizes with a wide range of hues, including neutrals, earth tones, and pastels for a charming and cozy appeal," said Erika Woelfel, vice president of color and creative services at Behr, in a press release.
Use Blank Canvas on bedroom walls to promote relaxation, or finish office built-ins and trim with the warm shade of white for a classic look that encourages creativity and concentration.
